Joined on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast by pop sensation – and big Manchester United fan – Olly Murs, Ally was tasked with singing along to one of The Voice judge’s biggest hits… having never heard the song before.
And it’s fair to say he rose to the challenge…
We’d say stick to the football, Ally, but these are GOLD!
We have no words for this.

We're not sure if Olly was disgusted or impressed!
The result surely means Solskjaer has it in the bag to be named the club’s next full-time boss, although he maintained after the game that he will still have to wait to discover the club’s decision.
After sacking Jose Mourinho in December, United only appointed Solskjaer as caretaker boss until the end of the season with the view to hire a more established coach over the summer.
But Murs says the clubs risk a huge fan backlash if the club legend is not handed the reins.
Speaking on the opening day of talkSPORT’s brand spanking new studios in London, he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “When he first came I thought, I’m so glad it’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer because I love him, but there was always that bit of doubt over his managerial experience.
“But the guy has been unbelievable.
“They’ll be riots if he doesn’t get the job.
“We were talking before this month that if Ole can get through against Liverpool, PSG and Chelsea, and he’s passed with flying colours.
Paul Pogba’s absence cost Manchester United dearly in Sunday’s Manchester derby, according to pop superstar and Red Devils fan Olly Murs.
Pogba, the midfielder, was forced to sit out the Etihad clash with an injury, and he had to watch from the sidelines as City secured a convincing 3-1 defeat of their local rivals.
David Silva and Sergio Aguero put the hosts in control before Anthony Martial converted a penalty to hand United hope they could rescue a point in the final half-hour. However, Ilkay Gundogan netted City’s third in the final minutes after a brilliant team move to put the result beyond all doubt.
The result returned City to the top of the Premier League table and opened up a 12-point gap between Pep Guardiola’s side and Jose Mourinho’s United.
City were considered favourites for the match prior to kick-off, and losing Pogba – widely regarded as United’s best outfield player – increased their chances of victory even further.
And, after the result proved United’s pre-match worries were correct, Olly Murs feels Pogba was a huge loss for the Red Devils.
Pop superstar Murs is a famous Man United fan, and he joined talkSPORT to discuss his disappointment with Sunday’s result.
“We missed Pogba big time, and people won’t be mentioning that today.

“I think we definitely missed that bit of quality in midfield yesterday; people forget we went there last season and were 2-0 down at half-time but managed to claw it back to 3-2 and Pogba was a massive part of that.
“When I looked at the midfield yesterday we had [Nemanja] Matic, [Marouane] Fellaini and [Ander] Herrera.
“When you compare that to the midfield they had…
“We missed Paul yesterday massively, it was a big loss for us.
“In the big games against the big teams you need to have your biggest players.”
While Murs – who watched the match while rehearsing for his performance on Sunday’s X Factor – had few words of praise of United’s midfield, he could not stop himself raving about one of City’s stars in the centre of the park.
He continued: “Fernandinho… Jesus, that guy! He is phenomenal.
“It pains me to say it, but he was everywhere yesterday. He is a massive part of that team and was massive yesterday.”
You see, the 28-year-old loves England and its culture. He’d fit right in at Old Trafford and here is the proof.
1. The man loves his darts.
2. His music tastes, while not everyone’s cup of tea, has a very English feel about it. And give him time, maybe he’ll discover The Stone Roses at Old Trafford.
3. He likes Olly Murs, who loves Manchester United
4. London is only two hours on the train from Manchester, though Manchester, among other things, has the footy museum, a great music scene and some top beer (assuming he’s a sterotypical German and likes his amber nectar)
5. He watches Wimbledon
There are even pictures of him singing karaoke. What Brit hasn’t sung a bit of ‘Sweet Caroline’ in their time?
We probably shouldn’t have to explain this is all just a bit of fun, and a celebration of the man himself, but you’d be surprised by the lack of humour some people have.
